2014 statistics

2014 end of year totals:
Calls for Service: 23,245
Traffic crashes: 1,375
Persons arrested: 5,406

Calls for service and traffic crash numbers were up. Arrests were almost even from last year. The department lost 4 Officers due to retirement/resignation during 2014. All Officers from 2013 had still not been replaced from a roster that is short by 12 patrolmen.
Arrest numbers are often influenced by number of officers on the street. The less hours on the street, the less proactive enforcement.

The increase in calls for service, in conjunction with a decreasing number of officers, results in less pro activity. Drug, cyber and financial crimes are on the upswing and consume considerable amounts of investigatory time.

The city continues to grow with the addition of commerce, and we look forward to new businesses in the near future. With this, brings visitors and criminals from surrounding counties that will require additional services.
